Driving back to Milano late night and be in time for your next meeting in St Anton am Arlberg at 8.30am the next day,well this means you have to be a little bit crazy. Anyway, so it went, spring was in the air on Monday, the weather was beautiful and there was beautiful fresh snow, of course. In Chamonix we had found lots of good powder, but also the Arlberg got some precipitations, up to half a meter of snow. Our base camp this time was a little bit in the middle of nowhere, and this gave us the great advantage of not being stuck in one area and being up to go wherever we felt it was best. We discovered many places I’ve never been before, the only thing I could guaranteed was the adventure (beside saftey, of course), never the result, and that has been the beauty of skiing along with William and his family so far. Here you have  a selection of images from these days of ski touring and off-piste skiing in Austria, including the climb of the Arlberg Winter Via Ferrata  and the ski touring trip to Mehlsack (one of the two spots in Austria where heli-skiing is allowed), a nice ski touring day on the Linker Fernerkogel in Pitztal and an exciting journey in the West of the Karwendel, where I felt at home for a day. Stunning limestone towers and walls, steep open bowls  and narrow couloirs which reminded my adventures around the Dolomites … when we have snow.
